Many Newton County residents who have their lives derailed by negligent drivers, unsafe worksites, unrestrained dogs and other hazards never receive full compensation for their injuries. Insurance companies work diligently to minimize the compensation they provide on personal injury claims. The decisions and actions taken by vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians and other injury victims in the wake of serious accidents can significantly impact the outcome of your personal injury case. When one is recovering from intense pain, emotional stress and/or physical disability, it is difficult to focus on the best approach to protecting one’s personal injury claim. Our experienced Newton County personal injury attorneys negotiate with insurance companies, navigate substantive and procedural legal requirements and investigate our client’s claims so that we can provide a compelling case when seeking the best results for our clients.
Montlick and Associates has been representing those suffering injury and the families of wrongful death victims in Newton County and the surrounding areas of Georgia since 1984. Our experienced Newton County personal injury attorneys handle a broad range of injury claims, including but not limited to the following:
Newton County Motor Vehicle Accident Claims: If you are injured in a car accident involving an inattentive, intoxicated, reckless or speeding driver, you may suffer life-altering injuries. Personal injury victims struck while riding a motorcycle or operating a tractor-trailer face a high risk of suffering permanent injury or even death because of the unique physics and/or the limited protection from impact in these types of collisions. We represent those involved in all types of motor vehicle collisions including: passenger car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle crashes, bus collisions, SUV rollovers and pedestrian-vehicle collisions. Our Newton County motor vehicle accident lawyers recognize the many strategies and tactics insurance companies utilize to derail legitimate car accident claims, and we work diligently to obtain the compensation our clients need to overcome their injuries and support their families.
Newton County Premises Liability Claims: The area of premises liability law prescribes the legal duties and basis for imposing liability on property owners who cause injury to those on their premises because of unsafe conditions. While public, residential and commercial property owners are not asked to be insurers for the safety of those that come on their property, they are expected to provide warnings or to take reasonable care to rectify hazards that they know or should know exist. The scope of this duty and whether a property owner has complied with this duty may involve the analysis of a range of factors, including the type of property, purpose of the visit, nature of the hazard, actions taken to warn visitors or remedy the hazard and a variety of other factors. Some of the types of premises liability cases we handle include: animal attacks, slip and falls, spa drain entrapment accidents, construction accidents, dog bites, swimming pool drowning incidents or trip and falls.
Newton County Workers' Compensation Claims [Construction Accidents]: When you suffer an injury while performing your work duties, you may be unable to work for weeks, months or years. Serious injuries and occupational illnesses can mean significant medical and rehabilitation expenses accompanied by an interruption in your wages or salary. Workers' compensation benefits can alleviate these hardships by providing medical care, temporary disability benefits and sometimes lump sum payments for long-term disability. Our Newton County workers' compensation attorneys represent clients both in workers' compensation cases and personal injury claims against third parties. Whether you are injured by an industrial accident, defective farming equipment accident, occupational exposure to hazardous materials or other workplace hazard, we are committed to seeking the compensation injured workers need to recover and get back to their daily activities.
Newton County Wrongful Death Claims: There are few experiences more difficult than having the life of someone close to you cut short because of the negligent, reckless or intentional conduct of another. The law does not permit wrongdoers who cause severe injury to others to avoid fiscal responsibility for the harm they cause when a victim dies. The estate of someone whose death is caused by another’s inadvertent or conscious misconduct and the victim’s family may seek compensation. Some damages may be sought on behalf of the decedent, which is referred to as a “survival action.” The family of the decedent may also seek compensation for their own losses because a loved one has been taken prematurely. Our Newton County wrongful death attorneys offer a free initial consultation so that we can explain the requirements for a wrongful death action in terms of who may bring the action and the types of recovery available.
Newton County Product Liability Claims: Businesses that take shortcuts when conducting quality control or evaluating the safety of their products may put consumers at risk when their products malfunction or fail to perform in the manner intended. Whether the defective product is a drug with harmful side effects, an airbag or car seat that fails in a car accident or an electrical device that causes a fire or explosion, you may have the right to pursue a product liability claim against any entity involved in the production or distribution process. Our Newton County product liability lawyers work closely with engineering experts so that we can identify defective features of dangerous or unreasonably unsafe products.
